Sup up your sandwich 1 – grilled halloumi with pesto and tapenade


Many of you find no time to cook dinner after long days at work, with kids or simply not fan of cooking. Sandwiches come to rescue the situation and satisfy your cravings; You can sup up any simple sandwich to become a consistent delicious meal. Not just that, it’s a pleasure to the eye also with all these colors blend .

All you need is the right and a smarter choice of pairing your sandwich ingredients. I will start with the grilled halloumi and pesto sandwich. They say pesto perks up milder ingredients and i confirm that! You need:

  • 2-3 slices of grilled halloumi
  • 1 tsp pesto
  • 1 tsp olive tapenade
  • roasted\grilled bell pepper (i had orange capsicum at home, you can choose from red, orange or yellow)
  • rocket leaves
  • 4-5 seedless olives
  • your choice of bread, mine is a multi-cereal bun


Spread pesto and tapenade on the bread. Top it with a layer of rocket leaves, this very low in calories vegetable; 100 g of fresh leaves hold just 25 calories. Nonetheless, it has many vital phytochemicals, anti-oxidants, vitamins, and minerals that may immensely benefit your health. Lay the grilled halloumi slices then roasted bell pepper. One half bell pepper supplies all the vitamin C and 80% of the vitamin A you need in a day. Bell peppers are naturally sweet, and roasting them adds a smoky accent to make a balance with the salt in cheese and olives. You can repeat or shuffle the ingredients as per your taste.

This sandwich presents the right harmony without having any ingredient overpowering the other.
